Map in back of Volume 4, 2 maps in volume 2 and signs of removal of maps in back of Volume 3. Pox on everyone who removes maps and plates from books. This is still a handsome set.

Life of Andrew Jackson-Reid-Eaton-1817
Item #: TEN-003405

Click image to enlarge
No paypal on this book but payment plans can be arranged.

This is the first edition of this important work begun by Reid and finished by Eaton. Published by Carey and Son in 1817. Complete title is The Life of Andrew Jackson, Major General in the Service of the United States comprising A History of The War in the South, from the Commencement of the Creek Campaign to the Termination of Hostilities Before New Orleans. All four maps are present. I have not unfolded but I spot one tear on the exterior of one.  Ink writing by previous owners on the inside cover, including that they had purchased it from a book dealer in Nashville. Calf leather and red leather title label with gold gilt which is original to the book. Calf is worn in places as might be expected. There is a split at the spine folds which is somewhat loose. Interior binding good. This is from my personal collection. At the time of this listing there was only one of this edition being offered by two different book services, one $6,000 + and the other $5,000+. That seems quite excessive to me but it does illustrate the rarity of this edition.

Great Locofoco Juggernaut
Item #: AME-000682

Click image to enlarge
Great condition on this slim volume. Complete title is Great Locofoco Juggernaut, A New Console-a-tory Sub-Treasury Rag-Monster: A Cartoon Bank Note by D. C. Johnston. Publisher: Barre Imprint Society 1971.; Limited to 1950 numbered copies, this one not numbered. A biographical sketch of this 19th century American engraver with emphasis on a comic bank note. Loosely inserted is a copy of the engraved banknote. Binding is tall 8vo., cloth-backed marbled paper covered boards, paper cover label. 35, (3) pages. The bank note cartoon is beautifully engraved and is often sold as an original note. It's not even close to the original note which is made on very thin rag. This mock bank note, drawn by the artist David Claypoole Johnston (1799-1865), was issued in 1837 in response to the fiscal crisis associated with the United States Bank and the sub-treasury proposed by Martin Van Buren. Puns abound in the verse, and the president, his predecessor Andrew Jackson, and Vice President Richard M. Johnson (1780-1850) are skewered for policies that political conservatives, bankers, and businessmen blamed for the country's economic woes. Johnston depicts Van Buren in several places on the note. Near the top he is seen as a cat, sitting on a bag of bank deposits on top of the juggernaut being driven by Vice President Johnson. On the left he is shown as a monkey heading "to ruin" behind an ass with Andrew Jackson's face. And in the center he is being choked by a snake labeled "Treasury Circular." Critics believed that radical Democrats, called Locofocos, were steamrolling ahead with reckless fiscal policies and that the new sub-treasury would flood the economy with worthless paper currency known as "rags" or "shinplasters." Van Buren's opponents blamed him for following Jackson's fiscal policies and contended that working men, instead of being aided by the sub-treasury, would be crushed by the new "monster" while public officials and the wealthy would benefit.
